Delta launch new Flood Resilience Brochure

  • 21 Sep 2018

Waterproofing experts Delta Membranes have launched their new Flood Resilience Brochure, covering construction measures on offer to prevent flood damage.

It looks at how to minimise flood water entering the building and damaging its fabric during a flood event and reducing the potential consequences where buildings are located in an area at risk of flooding.

Delta believe this will be valuable resource for home owners, architects, specifiers, planners, engineers and specialist contractors alike.

How can resistance and resilience help?

Whilst protecting a home from being flooded can be expensive, taking steps to protect your home from flooding may allow people to continue living in your home after a flood event and obtain insurance at a more affordable price.

Resistance and resilience measures can avoid the need to claim on insurance if flooding occurs or lower the value of any claim made.

Insurers will take flood resilience measures into account when providing insurance to large commercial and public sector customers.

For homeowners, specialist insurers will take account of resistance and resilience that are installed to reduce the effects of flooding.

What is a flood risk?

Flood risk takes into consideration the harm that a flood actually causes. It is a combination of the probability of an event happening and the consequences were it to occur.

A flood can take everything you have, including items of no value to anyone else.

Delta’s new brochure explores assessment of flood water entering into buildings, BS 85500:2015, Solutions and Delta’s Flood Resilient, Resilience and Recoverability Principles. Flood Resiliency is not a single solution, concept or perspective.

It’s an approach to changing the built environment. As manufacturers of waterproofing solutions and designs, it has extensive knowledge of water ingress and how it naturally performs in below ground structures.

However, Delta needed to learn about flooding, types of flooding, how floods occur and the nature of the same.

The consequences of floods vary greatly; a lot depends on the location and extent of flooding and the vulnerability and value of the environments they affect.

The consequences of floods vary (depending) on their location, duration, depth and speed. Water in a flood situation performs in a very similar mannerism to how it reacts underground in basement scenarios, where we have our expertise.
